(QUANTICO, Va.) -- Ballistics testing has linked the shooting at an empty Marine recruiting station to two other shooting incidents at military-related facilities in the Washington, D.C. area.
Laboratory tests conducted by the FBI found that the overnight shooting at a vacant Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly, Virginia on Oct. 26 involved the same weapon used at last week's shootings at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
The shooting at the Marine museum took place overnight on Oct. 17, and two days later, on Oct. 19, the Pentagon was fired upon around 5:00 a.m.
The FBI and law enforcement officials say it is unclear whether these incidents are more than vandalism by gun. In each case, the shooter fired in the early morning hours, which is generally when fewer people are around. The shots in all three shootings were fired into vacant parts of the buildings, resulting in no injuries.
Law enforcement agencies are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for anyone with information leading to an arrest.
